His design work ranges from facilitating MakerLabs to the creation of parties, including all the single components which need to be there to create the envisioned experience. He works through openness that everything should be Open so that whatever we do can be shared and build upon.
He is co-developing numerous projects like MakerLab, Enable Berlin, We Creative People, and Open Design City.
How are you engaged with betahaus?
I started working in the betahaus environment when Open Design City (the creative part at betahaus groundfloor) was opened. Firstly, as member, then, developing a close relationship with people that work at betahaus and other members, I started holding my own workshops and helped the ODC department in its earlier stage.
How does the coworking environment affects you?
Coworking is very important for my job mainly for two reasons: inspiration and new possibilities. I believe that working in a coworking environment helps me to maintain a fresh and updated mind on new trends. This is possible thanks to the possibility to work next to other members and gain inspiration from them. In addition, having the possibility to meet new people is very helpful for networking and might lead to create something together. In fact, when someone works in Open Design City and has a brilliant idea or starts being engaged in a certain project, other people might be interested in that project and join him to create a better product.
What is the biggest difficult that you faced in the coworoking environment?
Sharing tools and space sometimes might be difficult, especially if you are new to the coworking environment. Since the opening of Open Design City/ betahaus, more and more people joined this space and, sometimes, sharing the space with workshops or other members becomes frustrating. However, this is part of the coworking environment and it is a problem easily solvable by talking to the other members and creating your own internal coordination.
What are your future projects?
My next projects are: convention camp, and action research. Convention camp is based on expanding the “betahaus culture” and explaining it through experience and making people feel the actual sensation of being part of a coworking environment, instead of plain conventions and lectures. On the other hand, action research, is a project that helps to understand the future trends of the creative environment through interviewing people.
In addition, I want to keep working in the designing space environment and create experience for people.
Thanks for the interview!
The new space is six stories spread out across 2800 sqm. We’ll be renovating the building with our members in mind, so here’s what we can promise:
We'll be updating The Move landing page with photos as we have them, so watch out for that!
We’ll open the doors of our new space between mid-August and mid-September 2018. We plan to begin moving in July to ensure that the space is functional and comfortable by the time you get there. Bottom line, we’ll do everything we can to make the move as seamless as possible.
The move is our third big announcement of 2018 following the news that we’re be expanding our operations with betahaus | Tirana and managing coworking for Berlin’s new blockchain space, Full Node.
The idea behind betahaus was never to be just a coworking space. We wanted to create a platform where people of our generation could thrive personally and professionally. We’ve always thought we could do this on a much bigger scale and we’re thrilled to see it happening. We’re excited about what we’re able to learn from this move, not just for betahaus, but for the future of coworking in Europe.
We’re sure you have a lot of questions about what’s coming next.
We want to hear from you! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or join us for a closed Town Hall where we’ll answer all of your questions and talk through any concerns. We’ve also started members-only page for FAQs, resources, and important dates about the move (check your inbox!).
We've got some big changes ahead of us, but one thing's for sure: we're so glad to have you with us for the ride!
We're looking forward to this new challenge, and will keep you updated along the way. Get in touch with any questions you might have about Full Node!
